The relationship between Isaiah and Micah has long intrigued biblical scholars. While each prophet is unique, they share common ground, for example, in critiquing ideologies of warfare and calling the faithful to trust wholly in God. At this conference, specialists in the Bible’s prophetic literature address the books of Isaiah and Micah as intersecting expressions of religious life in ancient Israel.
Invited speakers include Richard Bautch (Austin), Joachim Eck (Eichstätt-Ingolstadt), Michael Floyd (Austin), Christopher Hays (Pasadena), J. Todd Hibbard (Detroit), Ndikho Mtshiselwa (Pretoria), James Nogalski (Waco) and Burkard Zapff (Eichstätt-Ingolstadt).
There will be a concurrent exhibit of art by Jenn Hassin that allows conference participants to engage themes found in biblical prophecy from another perspective, that of the creative arts. Ms. Hassin is renown for a style of art that features rolled paper. During the luncheon portion of the conference, Ms. Hassin will speak about her work and her experiences creating art inspired by accounts from Israel as well as her own experiences there.
The conference is jointly sponsored by St. Edward’s University and the Katholischen Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt
